ONLINE COURSE – Introduction to mixed models using R and Rstudio (IMMR03) This course will be delivered live

25 November 2020 - 26 November 2020
Delivered remotely (USA east), Eastern Daylight Time, MD United States

Course Overview: In this two day course, we provide a comprehensive practical and theoretical introduction to multilevel models, also known as hierarchical or mixed effects models. We will focus primarily on multilevel linear models, but also cover multilevel generalized linear models. Likewise, we will also describe Bayesian approaches to multilevel modelling. On Day 1, we will begin by focusing on random effects multilevel models. These models make it clear how multilevel models are in fact models of models. In addition,…

ONLINE COURSE – Nonlinear Regression using Generalized Additive Models (GAMR01) This course will be delivered live

16 December 2020 - 17 December 2020
Delivered remotely (USA east), Eastern Daylight Time, MD United States

Course Overview: This course provides a general introduction to nonlinear regression analysis using generalized additive models. As anM introduction, we begin by covering practically and conceptually simple extensions to the general and generalized linear models framework using polynomial regression. We will then cover more powerful and flexible extensions of this modelling framework by way of the general concept of basis functions, which includes spline and radial basis functions. We then move on to the major topic of generalized additive models…

ONLINE COURSE – Structural Equation Modelling for Ecologists and Evolutionary Biologists (SEMR03) This course will be delivered live

18th January 2021 - 22nd January 2021
Delivered remotely (USA east), Eastern Daylight Time, MD United States

Course Overview: The course is a primer on structural equation modelling (SEM) and confirmatory path analysis, with an emphasis on practical skills and applications to real-world data. Structural equation modelling is a rapidly growing technique in ecology and evolution that unites multiple hypotheses in a single causal network. It provides an intuitive graphical representation of relationships among variables, underpinned by well-described mathematical estimation procedures. Several advances in SEM over the past few years have expanded its utility for typical ecological…

ONLINE COURSE – Introduction to Multi’omics Data Analysis from Microbial Communities (MOMC01) This course will be delivered live

27th July 2021 - 30th July 2021
Delivered remotely (USA east), Eastern Daylight Time, MD United States

Course Overview: The aim of this course is to provide a thorough introduction to computational approaches for the analysis of multi-omics data from microbial communities with a focus on metagenomic and metatranscriptomic data. We will start from raw sequencing files, introduce different bioinformatic approaches to process sequencing data, followed by multivariate statistical analysis and different visualization techniques. The course will consist of a mixture of lectures and hands-on tutorials. On the last day, participants have the opportunity to bring and…
